I have got several bin bags of biodegradable bubble wrap filling the garage…can anyone think of any use for it?

Great party game.  See which team can pop their bubbles first!  If you have no parties coming up, stick it on freecycle.  People who are moving are always after bubble wrap.

...thanks, will try freecycle..DD2 is 18mths and it panicks me having it anywhere near her!

Or your local pre-school might like some for the bubble pop competition.

keep some though - it’s great for paint printing with!

felting and painting are the two things that come to mind, my toddler will sit for ages popping it with hands or feet!

I’m jealous. It’s good as frost protection for plants. You can get caught out with veg growing by a late frost!
I’d never buy any, but if you already have it it is good for that.

wink and if you get involve in the season swap great for wrapping your swap gift in smile

...i need to knw more about the season swap and the LETS scheme…may have a look now!

or you could dontate it to you local charity shop for wrapping, or if you have a local run art gallery??

I think it’s perfectly acceptable to use as a (supervised)toy - there’s nothing quite so much fun as jumping all over the stuff. Especially if you have no other re-use for it. For example: -

Rewind back to January when we had our new “A” rated fridge (why is it not till after I bought this one did I discover there was a “AA” rating?!!!), and it came wrapped in the MOST amount of bubblewrap I have ever seen. Knowing it was going back to be thrown away (they have to clear up after themselves and throw it) we spent a very fun-filled half an hour as a family jumping on the stuff… Nothing beats it as a stress reliever and it’s proper, belly laughing *fun*

Adventures of a Little Roo

They love you, relax into that

How adout making a shower curtain. A friend of mine did this and it looked fab.


Use it to do some wet felting?  All you need are the wool tops, some soapy water and elbow grease!

With summer here you can use it with your kids at the water for added safety.  Use the bubblewrap to create arm floaties for your children. Wrap the bubble wrap around the child’s upper arm. Tape into place wrapping the tape several times around the bubble wrap. These arm “floaties” will keep kids from going under the water. Wrap with small bubbles can be used for really little children. Wrap it twice around their arms before securing with tape. Larger kids can use the wrap with the big bubbles. Dip the floaties in the water before putting them on the arm to make them slide on easier.

Cheaper than buying those things at the store.

We say we love flowers, yet we pluck them.  We say we love trees, yet we cut them down.  And people still wonder why some are afraid when told they are loved.
